    The way I look at it, you'd get a 200usd discount on the 17/1.8. It's a shame they didn't include the black 17/1.8 instead.

    And Olympus is throwing in a metal hood and cap and wait for it... a limited edition wooden box. :tongue:

    Fuzzy math. OMD new $1000. 17/1.8 is $500 (now, was $450). $500+$1000=$1500 - $1400= $100 savings. If you bought the 17/1.8 2 days ago, it'd only be a $50 savings.

    Oh crap. Hehe.. Dunno how that happened. Of course, you're right. I blame it on posting at 1:30 in the early morning. Then again if you count the metal lens hood and pinch cap. :tongue:

    The deal is worth it for the wooden box alone!

    I like the idea of limited edition but would've rather they did either black body/black lens or silver body/black lens.
